Egypt Train Crash

At least 43 people were killed as two trains collided outside the Mediterranean City of Alexandria, in one of the deadliest in a string of such accidents in Egypt.

According to Health Ministry, the Crash also injured 123 people.

The crash was probably caused by a malfunction in one train that brought it to a halt on the rails.

The other train then crashed into it.

One train had been heading from Cairo to the Northern City of Alexandria and the other from the canal city of port said, east of the capital, to Alexandria.

It was the deadliest train accident in the North African country since a train ploughed into a bus carrying schoolchildren in November 2012, killing 47 people.

The accident was blamed on a train signal operator who fell asleep on the job.
